Really odd that after all these years I still have to manually tell Firefox which monitor color profile to use AND turn color management on.

When Sass introduced the scss syntax I started using it, and it was sold by saying that css is valid scss. And, it is still. I can take any css file I import, change its file extension to scss, and Sass no longer complains. To me removing importing of css pretty much defeats the entire purpose of the scss syntax. I'm not writing a custom importer just so I can import a few css. That's adding additional unnecessary complexity to a process that's already way more complicated than it should be.

I open up a project I hadn't worked on in about a year and all the npm modules don't work anymore, and sass complains about importing css files.

I -hate- this shit.

I wrote a bit the other day showing my thoughts about social media and my move away from Twitter: dustinwilson.com/blog/birdshit

It is really sad Edge is going away. We need competition on the Web now more than ever. Microsoft really didn't do a good job with Edge selling it to people. How could it ever have a chance when people were taught for years that the blue e was crap and to stay away from using it because it was unsafe for their computers? From a purely design standpoint they failed before anyone ever opened the browser.

Migrated my mastodon install to a new server and finally updated lol. Thanksgiving holiday was busy!

This here event where ownership of a npm module was transferred over to a malware actor has me wound up in a bit of paranoia.

It isn't that we didn't see this coming. A lot of people did and warned about this exact scenario. For example: hackernoon.com/im-harvesting-c

It's more that it triggers, again, my worry about how unsustainable the current OSS ecosystem looks, relying almost entirely on unpaid labour and burnt out maintainers.

Which is a very 😱 kind of thought.

Day 16 . I managed to do half of the prompts this year. I didn’t finish this one in time, but it’s interesting nonetheless in its present form. It’s of crystals from the Naica cave in Mexico which are absolutely gigantic in scale.

Day 15 . Haven’t had time lately OTL. Caterpillar is having a difficult time when the weak twig broke.

Liking Mast for the most part. Wish I could disable the long-hold thing all together. By default it changes the theme, so whenever I try to copy text it would change the theme. Now it just shows confetti and celebrates my text selection. Also wish it had a way to add descriptions to images for accessibility reasons.

Day 11 . Way too far behind to catch up now, but oh well! This is a shoebill stork, a bird native to Africa whose young fight to the death in a cruel showing of survival of the fittest. That cruelty is outshone by the fact they’re nearly killed to extinction because they’re believed to be “unlucky”. mastodon.dustinwilson.com/medi

Spent an hour today trying to explain to a client that the photoshop file I sent him was there in the Dropbox folder, but he was convinced nothing was there because Dropbox couldn’t generate a preview for that one file when the other two had previews... gotta love bad ui.

Day 9 . I wanted to show how precious wildlife is. Black Rhinos are almost hunted to extinction. This depicts a baby rhino and a projection of her parent. Not sure if that registers, probably would better if I had something in the background. mastodon.dustinwilson.com/medi
